Yep, Baby W is the size of an Onion. I am sooooo excited. Last week I scheduled my Anatomy scan. April 12 we find out what the gender is, and take all those lovely measurements. The bad part...I have to drink 32 oz of water, and hold it for about an hour. Poor me!
So this week we put up our crib, you know like a tester run. I wanted to make sure that we had all the parts, as it was a hand me down. It won't be up permanently yet because it still needs to be painted. I was going to ask my dad if he can do that, he has all the stuff to do it.
What's new this week?
How far along: 17.1 Weeks
Maternity clothes: Still in my regular clothes. I have feeling I won't be "truly showing" until month 6ish. Either that, or I will be small and wide. :(
Total weight gain: 9.5 pounds (I would weigh myself with our scale, but I think it's wrong, so I'll just keept the Dr. weight)
Belly Button: Still an innie.
Best moment this week: Putting up the crib. (testing...it still needs to be painted, as it is a hand me down)
Food cravings: Tomato's.
Food aversions: None in particular.
Gender: Not known yet, but I'm thinking it's a boy! Check out our video, and tell me what you think.
Crazy Dreams: Had a dream last night that I had ugly Grape colored stretch marks on my legs, only the were vertical up and down the leg...lol
What I miss: Being able to fit my clothes properly (transitional stage is a bummer)
What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender.
Milestones: Baby is still kicking, and about 5 inches in length. Crazy how much they grow from week to week.
Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.
Until next week,
